green is greater than gold

blades blessed by the sun
growing greater than the sum
a million lunges
a million parries
blades dance like the wind
inextricably twinned

separate bladey souls
acting as a whole
growing over thatch
upward each blade hatched
enriched by the old
green is greater than gold

breezy undulating waves
from this field no one shaves
great ripples of green flow
seemingly ceaseless show
of every hue they whittle
two foxes in the middle

violins of breed bermuda
sway as if playing rumba
their lush and fluid raga
a grand symphonic saga
each blade a sacred tongue
with which joyful noise is sung

banners fragrant for the eyes
their luscious nature can’t disguise
if their songs tantalize the ears
or with toes soles heels one hears
each blade a story to be told
green is greater than gold
